About Ashe Thurman

At one time an engineering student, then a technical illustrator, then a graphic designer,she's now mostly working on pursuing her dream of being a full time fantasy writer. She's delved into script writing, sequential art, interactive fiction, and game story design, as well, and hopes to put all these different ideas in practice in the years to come.
Some days she wants to be Neil Gaimen, some days Hiromu Arakawa, some days David Gaider. Other days she’s cosplaying, dragging her poor husband to conventions, adding puppets to her collection, making crochet hats for her favorite voice actors, playing video games, and reading.

Reading Latolan: A Question of Culture
Join me and some of my voice actor friends as we bring a new element to the series via audiobook. All voice actors are semi-professional up and comers, and any donations (links available on the video) go to support some very talented independent artists and actors.

About the Series: Latolan
When the gates first opened on Latolan some eight hundred years ago, the only thing the first explorers found were the drunken ruins of a civilization at least a thousand years dead. The only major settlement is Tomar, a single, 80 mile wide city-state containing a number of prestigious universities and private schools, The Grand Tomar Library, and the main hall of several technical and magical guilds. The kaleidoscopic native population is joined by the seasonal residents of Starlight Vale, off-world wealth and nobility with the disposable income to keep a second estate in the valleys between the peaks of the Starlight Mountains.

Apart from a number of smaller settlements and outposts peppered haphazardly across the backroads–so referred to for the impression of ancient roads and ruins that must have at one point criss-crossed a mighty nation–much of Latolan remains unmapped and unsettled. This is not for lack of trying, but voyages into virgin territory return more bodies than answers.

A series of shorts exploring this world and a handful of its inhabitants.

Review by: James Jenkins on Dec. 18, 2015 :
Not overly good or bad, a bit stronger story line than 'A Red Ring of Light'.

Review by: Mary Blackwell on Dec. 6, 2015 :
Please let there be a sequel.

I rediscovered the joy I found when I first discovered the scifi books in my local library in the seventies of human trying to work out another race. The mysterious discovery bringing about a sweeping generalisation occurring over a lunchtime discussion was just brilliantly written.
